During the campaign for chairmanship of the RNC, the candidate with the backing of far right conservatives wasn’t Michael Steele — it was former Ohio secretary of state Ken Blackwell. In response to Steele’s flip-flopping on abortion, Blackwell told conservative blogger Matt Lewis:

Chairman Steele, as the leader of America’s Pro-Life conservative party, needs to re-read the Bible, the U.S. Constitution, and the 2008 GOP Platform. He then needs to get to work — or get out of the way.

When Blackwell dropped out of the RNC race, he threw his support behind Steele. However, will he now instead be part of the Steele recall effort?
